[ARCHIVED] City works with other agencies to promote safe practices as Tahoe reopens


South Lake Tahoe, CA- The City of South Lake Tahoe, along with the Tahoe Chamber, Barton Health, and the Lake Tahoe Visitors authority came together to produce a PSA asking folks to socially distance and wear a mask as people return to Tahoe.

Over the last four months, we have learned a lot about COVID-19 transmission, most notably that people who are infected but are asymptomatic or presymptomatic play an important part in community spread. The use of face coverings by everyone can limit the release of infected droplets when talking, coughing, and/or sneezing, as well as reinforce physical distancing.

“This is about more than following the governor’s order, this is about being responsible and making sure the people around us stay safe,” said Communications Manager Chris Fiore, “We are excited to have people back in Tahoe, but we want to make sure people are doing everything they can to keep Tahoe safe.”

If you would like to help us spread this message, it can be viewed here and the PSA can be downloaded at the link here.
